I have sorted the trailer issues with Bugs and Stella. Both load with no problems. Bugs is still frightened of the trailer but gets in. My next step is to get him in on voice command which is getting closer. Stella was a respect issue Like my better half she thought she could boss me around but allas in Stellas case not any more. On the married front I have learnt over the years to do as I am told. Well that's what she thinks, do you know the secret to a relationship.
Its to get the other person to do what you want them to do, while, they think they are doing what they want to do. I have been practicing that for years. I am often doing what I think I want to do.
On both horses I got in a young lady trained in the Perilli methods and then followed what she had done.
I think the best thing I did was to step back and allow someone else to fix the problem. It puts the horse off guard and control was regained. Best $70 I have spent
